san francisco has been a leader in our technology community and our technology economy across our country and now we get to continue to play a role in being a leader bringing technology solutions to improve the lives of our residents here in our city. it's been a privilege to work on this project and to lead this effort the last two years and look forward to bringing the broader vision of free wi-fi across san francisco in the next few years with all the partners behind me today. this has been a strong collaboration on behalf of a lot of partners. in particular, google, sf city, our recreation and park department as well as our department of technology, and i want to thank all of those involved. this project started a little over two years ago with a conversation i had with an old family friend from google. and i want to take a moment to thank the entire google team that worked on this project. it's been two years, so, it's touched a lot of desks and had a lot of approvals and in particular want to thank veronika bell who is here from google for stepping p. up. google is providing

and my question is regarding the sort of fast pace of technological change. as you point out the navy has better discipline in its shipbuilding and design package but on the other hand how can we solve that with a need to take, future technology as a game change in naval warfare? thank you very much. >> designing and building new technology does not equal cost overruns. one of the major reasons for cost overruns, perhaps the most significant one is you decide you are going to build a particular ship like the new carrier where new combat systems are being engineered for the first time, and as you are building the ships, one or 10 or 100 of your prime contractor or secondary contractors do business with come along and say i have a better idea for doing this than the one we had originally agreed to. it is going to cost you all little bit more and if you say let's do it, no problem. if you say it a thousand times, big problem. being disciplined about those issues would be a large step forward in introducing the cost discipline i'm talking about into a system that has had trouble maintaining i

in a dangerous technology we have today is very different from what we had years ago. i want to point out the nature -- we often say nature is the first terrorist because of the enormous impact nature can have in creating infectious diseases as well as extreme weather. globalization is a blessing and a curse, the fact we can have rapid movement of diseases. oneften talk about being plane ride away from something very bad. we are one e-mail away from dangerous information that should be out of the hands of people that are very dangerous. very challenging world today. heard about the significant threats. we had a foodborne outbreak. outbreak thatt shows about our need to refine programs as well as challenges to the infrastructure for public health. the fertilizer explosion tells us a lot about what can happen rurale america -- in america. of course the tornadoes that can devastate communities. the importance is public health role in all of these things. about the boston bombings. what many people do not , they were heralded for the fine work, but they did work in a staged event, and things

until 2011. he is now senior counselor to the ceo of the data analytics alantir technologies. he is also a national security analyst for nbc news. why don't we begin with a very ,road question, and that is what is the current state of the threat from terrorism? where does it emanate from and how serious is it? why don't we start with you? >> it is great to be here. it is daunting to talk about it. we have talked about a lot of subjects today. i will give it a shot. i would say right off of the top the threat is very different now for what it was 10 years ago and even 4 years ago. thinking at a couple of different levels. as have been noted, the threat from al qaeda and afghanistan is really significantly degrading. we do not face the same rate as the same attack as 9/11. the group is really struggling to survive to recruit and train and operate. it still is -- it remains at the vanguard of the movement. is still looks to for leadership and guidance from the affiliate groups and to mention the one that concerns us most. that group in yemen has the capability and intent to carry out attack

on earth we are going to have to think about what kinds of technologies we can invent to draw carbon down out of the atmosphere when it actually starts getting in there either through stuff that we have done which one argues is not very natural or through the natural carbon cycle for the planet. so those technologies are geoengineering technologies, waste of engineering the entire geology of the earth. and i do talk about that in the book as well. trust me it's a long way off. there have been some geode engineering experiments that happened actually quite recently. there was a road geoengineering off the coast of canada who did an experiment trying to talk down carbon from the atmosphere by doing iron seeding in the ocean and so far doesn't seem as if it worked out. the ideas you put iron in the ocean and it attracts microbes that like to eat iron and those microbes also drawdown carbon when they die into the autumn of the ocean and take the carbon with them. the problem is they don't tend to sink all the way to the bottom of the ocean so you end up with fluorocarbon. that's just a start

technology? guest: is really important that we better use technology in the administration of our elections. much of our registration system is based on an outmoded process. we do have computers and other ways of making sure that when people registered to vote that they are not so reliant on simple paper forms that need to get mailed and typed in sometimes twice and are expensive to process. we should have a system where the computers can talk to each other and election officials can benefit from those kinds of things. a number of states use technology in an effective way to register voters. preventsaper, it concerns of fraud because the ls are cleaner. i hope these discussions about elections are going to result in efforts in states to try and leverage technology to save taxpayers money and to make our voting rolls more accurate. omi, welcome to the conversation. caller: thank you for taking my call. i would like to say a couple of things. your guests makes me feel like i have no intellectual -- at all. i am a woman of color, 69 years old. she said minorities do not have the right to vote
